Eskom is south Africa’s biggest Polluter

Eskom is the country’s largest emitter by far (over 200Mts/year); is building the third and fourth largest coal-fired plants in the world (for which it got the World Bank’s largest ever project loan last year); is charging the two biggest mining/metals houses – Anglo/BHP BIlliton – the world’s cheapest electricity rates ($0.02/kWh); is imposing 27% price increases on poor people year after year; and is a loyal member of Pretoria’s climate negotiating team! Thank goodness for the world’s finest cartoonist, Zapiro!
